The story of the Fiat Dino begins, like those of most of Italy's great cars, with the engine. An all-aluminum 2 liter quad cam V6 derived from the Dino 196 race car engine was converted for road use by Aurelio Lampredi and placed into volume production in order to homologate the motor for racing use in Formula 2. 500 units needed to be produced and Ferrari knew they would not be able to produce or sell so many cars during this period, so the motors were employed in a new flagship Fiat Dino, in addition to the Ferrari 206 Dino. The Fiat Dino was available in closed or open form, bodied by Bertone and Pininfarina respectively. 24% of the Dinos produced were Spiders while the remaining cars were coupes. The Dino was developed over its production run, and a raft of changes was implemented over the years, including the fitment of the 2.4 liter engine, ZF 5-speed gearbox, performance and cosmetic enhancements. The latter being the rarest and most sought after of them all. We present to you this benchmark example.

This particular car, Dino Spyder # 1219, was manufactured in 1970 and was owned by a Mr. Steven Hubbard from Saint Paul, Minnesota. Mr. Hubbard's ownership lasted for almost 30 years before he sold this example to a dealer in Florida, who then sold it to a Costa Rican citizen in the June of 2015. Before Mr. Hubbard purchased the car back in the 1970s, he was a serviceman living in Europe. There he befriended a man who was the original owner of the car. Hubbard so loved the car that he tried to convince the owner to sell him the car. It turns out that Steven owned a Gold “Rolex President” watch that the Dino owner also was in love with so eventually Steven ended up with the car in exchange for the gold watch and a thousand dollars. Steven enjoyed the car in Europe before moving back to the United States. After almost 30 years of ownership he decided to sell it because he wasn't using it anymore as he had already put approx. 115,000 kilometers on the car and felt it was time to move it on to the Floridian. Under the new ownership the suspension and drivetrain was rebuilt by Dino Specialist Joe Nash in England some years ago, recognized by the famous Fiat Dino Collector and author, Mike Morris. The car was then shipped to Los Angeles where it was cosmetically restored by a Fiat Dino Specialist.

The car has a fresh appearance, while correct and preserved in its details. The Dino received paint and upholstery in matching original livery, both keeping in high standard. Correct “snake skin” Dino vinyl was sourced from Italy for the cabin, displaying optional headrests and a proper matching boot cover, while the silver paint was matched to original applied on the body. Both engine and luggage compartments are nicely displayed and orderly. As part of the restoration process, the Spider received a complete servicing and tune-up. While most recently, undergoing thorough inspection and brake system freshening. A modern MSD ignition system has been incorporated inside the original Dinoplex housing to give its next owner trouble-free motoring, while at the same time retaining the original appearance. Accordingly, it drives very well, with excellent power and that wonderful V6 exhaust note which make Dinos so special. Original 1971 dated Cromodora 6 ½ X 14”wheels and new Michelin XWX tires complement. All gauges are functioning, and the top fits beautifully. The suspension is in very good order with precise steering and stopping.

The spider comes complete with its 2.4 liter owner's manual, jack and tool kit, along with the original spare wheel and new spare tire. Between 1969 and 1972 only 424 Fiat 2.4 Dino Spiders were ever produced - almost 1/8th of that of the 246 GT and GTS models, yet had basically identical power plants. Rarest of all the breeds, these Dinos have attracted the attention of some of the most perceptive collectors, this particular 2400 Spider now available at an excellent price for worldwide purchase and delivery from our Houston, Texas showroom.
